Good time with old friends.

Sail Date: March 2014
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Bayonne (Cape Liberty)

This is the 4th time we sailed on the Explorer. Mainly because it leaves from NJ and we would rather avoid the hassle of flying. The Explorer is a nice ship and even though it is an older one it still offers a lot of things to do. If you are looking for zip lines and other adventurous activities you will not find them on the Explorer but there is the rock climbing wall and mini golf, basketball courts and in-line skating. For us just going on a cruise and unplugging, so to speak, and relaxing with each other is our goal. The internet on the ship right now leaves a lot to be desired but I have been told that once it goes into dry dock next March they plan to re-wire the ship so you will have internet in the rooms too.

All in all we had a great time especially since they had a very good dance band in the Aquarium lounge every night and two hours of Ballroom dancing in the Maharajah lounge this time out. Its nice to know they listen when guest write to the company. We especially More had a good time with Erky the activities director and it was nice to meet his girl and able to talk to them at length Friday night. We love cruising. Less
